The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities
The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities in Hackney, East London is difficult to pin down into one single category. Part museum, part gallery and pure oddity, it is full of strange and surreal objects, such as the two headed lambs and Fiji mermaids, and its first floor gallery features art from across several centuries, including the country’s largest collection of Leonora Carrington’s surrealist work.
From dodo bones and extinct bird feathers, along with a giant skeleton of an anteater, Viktor Wynd’s site is one of the most unique on many levels. Those interested in the more bizarre, and coming close to odd collections of human remains can examine dead babies in bottles, stare at shrunken heads, and wonder at fossils and centuries old medical instruments.
